buddhist philosophy [Jun. 14th, 2005|01:20 am]
I think therefore I like philosophy
can anyone suggest philosophy programs that focus on non-western philosophy? specifically, i'm interested in studying mahayana buddhist philosophy, but any place that deals with asian and/or other non-western traditions would be good.

A professor suggested Naropa University to me, and it might be what you're looking for, although it seems a bit light on the "philosophy" and more interested in "religious studies"

(the professor practiced Buddhism, I believe Zen or Mahayana, and recommended it to me because we have similar interests)

For a more general approach, see if you like St. John's College Eastern Classics Program. It's a bit non-standard, but I've heard really wonderful things about it.

I'm currently studying Theravada Buddhism at the University of New Mexico. At UNM one can take classes and write your thesis or dissertation in Asian Phil., but the majority of the requirements are in Western Phil. The focus of the profs. is primarily Indian Phil. though. There is also University of Hawaii where there is a wide variety of interests and areas of expertise in Asian Phil. amongst the profs. Hope these are helpful suggestions.
